We loved our stay here at Bryn Bettws lodges. We stayed in a cabin which was reasonably priced ... Great access to the trails and a cool skill pit right on site. The staff were very helpful and friendly . Whilst we chose not to eat in the canteen there were meals being provided at reasonable prices. The cabins kitchen...

Stick with this review to end! We stayed at this lodge for a biking event. It was not easy to book, never any reply on phone so e mailed and reply took a while, but confirmation made so all well. Arrived at Lodge and no staff were there, so contacted by mobile, had to go up hill to get signal,...

Huge field to choose anywhere to pitch. Brilliant value as mtb bike park on site and trails next door. Staff were very friendly. However, we did feel we were in the middle of a building site or it was closing down. We couldn't 't quite work it out. The lodge looked refurbished but the camping facilities looked like it was...

Visited with my parents, lovely views, peace and quiet. Basic lodges and amenities but good for price. Easy access to Neath and Swansea. Trail rides for mtb is fab 👍 Local shops in Cimla brilliant prices for beer and wine. Close access to M4, A465 makes exploring this area of South Wales easy.

We came here with a school group from Weymouth for a mountain biking weekend. We had a great time and were well looked after by very friendly staff who couldn't do enough to help. Accommodation is based on bunk rooms basic but clean and food was simple and filling. Would certainly go back again.

Stayed here in our campervan. Excellent location for mountain biking and owners really helpful allowing us to use the cafe to cook our food. Bar and food only available if lots of people staying but that's understandable. Great location.

We went on a bootcamp weekend and were put in the dorm rooms. Rooms were relatively clean despite the smell of damp and a mouldy bathroom. Luckily we spent more time out of the rooms than in them. You probably won't have a great nights sleep either unless you enjoy sleeping on a mattress that resembles concrete and you enjoy...

Arrived late on a sunday night and the place was deserted, so we wandered around to the 'pod' we had booked and found the key in the door with a lovely note explaining where the toilets and showers were etc and the heating was on, which I cant explain in enough words just how nice that was after a days...
